Template: Sticky

This is a sticky post.

There are a few things to verify:

  • The sticky post should be distinctly recognizable in some way in comparison to normal posts. You can style the .sticky class if you are using the post_class() function to generate your post classes, which is a best practice.
  • They should show at the very top of the blog index page, even though they could be several posts back chronologically.
  • They should still show up again in their chronologically correct postion in time, but without the sticky indicator.
  • If you have a plugin or widget that lists popular posts or comments, make sure that this sticky post is not always at the top of those lists unless it really is popular.

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.

Markup: Image Alignment

Welcome to image alignment! The best way to demonstrate the ebb and flow of the various image positioning options is to nestle them snuggly among an ocean of words. Grab a paddle and let’s get started.

On the topic of alignment, it should be noted that users can choose from the options of NoneLeftRight, and Center. In addition, they also get the options of ThumbnailMediumLarge & Fullsize.

Image Alignment 580x300

The image above happens to be centered.

Image Alignment 150x150The rest of this paragraph is filler for the sake of seeing the text wrap around the 150×150 image, which is left aligned

As you can see the should be some space above, below, and to the right of the image. The text should not be creeping on the image. Creeping is just not right. Images need breathing room too. Let them speak like you words. Let them do their jobs without any hassle from the text. In about one more sentence here, we’ll see that the text moves from the right of the image down below the image in seamless transition. Again, letting the do it’s thang. Mission accomplished!

And now for a massively large image. It also has no alignment.

Image Alignment 1200x400

The image above, though 1200px wide, should not overflow the content area. It should remain contained with no visible disruption to the flow of content.

Image Alignment 300x200

And now we’re going to shift things to the right align. Again, there should be plenty of room above, below, and to the left of the image. Just look at him there… Hey guy! Way to rock that right side. I don’t care what the left aligned image says, you look great. Don’t let anyone else tell you differently.

In just a bit here, you should see the text start to wrap below the right aligned image and settle in nicely. There should still be plenty of room and everything should be sitting pretty. Yeah… Just like that. It never felt so good to be right.

And just when you thought we were done, we’re going to do them all over again with captions!

Image Alignment 580x300
Look at 580×300 getting some caption love.

The image above happens to be centered. The caption also has a link in it, just to see if it does anything funky.

Image Alignment 150x150
Itty-bitty caption.

The rest of this paragraph is filler for the sake of seeing the text wrap around the 150×150 image, which is left aligned

As you can see the should be some space above, below, and to the right of the image. The text should not be creeping on the image. Creeping is just not right. Images need breathing room too. Let them speak like you words. Let them do their jobs without any hassle from the text. In about one more sentence here, we’ll see that the text moves from the right of the image down below the image in seamless transition. Again, letting the do it’s thang. Mission accomplished!

And now for a massively large image. It also has no alignment.

Image Alignment 1200x400
Massive image comment for your eyeballs.

The image above, though 1200px wide, should not overflow the content area. It should remain contained with no visible disruption to the flow of content.

Image Alignment 300x200
Feels good to be right all the time.

And now we’re going to shift things to the right align. Again, there should be plenty of room above, below, and to the left of the image. Just look at him there… Hey guy! Way to rock that right side. I don’t care what the left aligned image says, you look great. Don’t let anyone else tell you differently.

In just a bit here, you should see the text start to wrap below the right aligned image and settle in nicely. There should still be plenty of room and everything should be sitting pretty. Yeah… Just like that. It never felt so good to be right.

And that’s a wrap, yo! You survived the tumultuous waters of alignment. Image alignment achievement unlocked!

Markup: Text Alignment

Default

This is a paragraph. It should not have any alignment of any kind. It should just flow like you would normally expect. Nothing fancy. Just straight up text, free flowing, with love. Completely neutral and not picking a side or sitting on the fence. It just is. It just freaking is. It likes where it is. It does not feel compelled to pick a side. Leave him be. It will just be better that way. Trust me.

Left Align

This is a paragraph. It is left aligned. Because of this, it is a bit more liberal in it’s views. It’s favorite color is green. Left align tends to be more eco-friendly, but it provides no concrete evidence that it really is. Even though it likes share the wealth evenly, it leaves the equal distribution up to justified alignment.

Center Align

This is a paragraph. It is center aligned. Center is, but nature, a fence sitter. A flip flopper. It has a difficult time making up its mind. It wants to pick a side. Really, it does. It has the best intentions, but it tends to complicate matters more than help. The best you can do is try to win it over and hope for the best. I hear center align does take bribes.

Right Align

This is a paragraph. It is right aligned. It is a bit more conservative in it’s views. It’s prefers to not be told what to do or how to do it. Right align totally owns a slew of guns and loves to head to the range for some practice. Which is cool and all. I mean, it’s a pretty good shot from at least four or five football fields away. Dead on. So boss.

Justify Align

This is a paragraph. It is justify aligned. It gets really mad when people associate it with Justin Timberlake. Typically, justified is pretty straight laced. It likes everything to be in it’s place and not all cattywampus like the rest of the aligns. I am not saying that makes it better than the rest of the aligns, but it does tend to put off more of an elitist attitude.

Markup: Title With Special Characters ~`!@#$%^&*()-_=+{}[]/;:'”?,.>

Putting special characters in the title should have no adverse effect on the layout or functionality.

Special characters in the post title have been known to cause issues with JavaScript when it is minified, especially in the admin when editing the post itself (ie. issues with metaboxes, media upload, etc.).

Latin Character Tests

This is a test to see if the fonts used in this theme support basic Latin characters.

! # $ % & ( ) *
+ , - . / 0 1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8 9 : ; > = <

Markup: Title With Markup

Verify that:

  • The post title renders the word “with” in italics and the word “markup” in bold.
  • The post title markup should be removed from the browser window / tab.

A Big NO to Flash

Flash animation is a buzz word that a majority of our clients use to describe animation, sliders, and generally any moving part on their website. Even though a better solution could be built using jQuery & HTML5, the customer knows it only to be “Flash”, and as such, only asks for Flash.

…..But technology changes in a flash, gone are the days when Apple & Blackberry were just fruits.

  1. Flash is not SEO friendly:
    Googlebots do not index pages with Flash content. So if your website homepage has flash, it is less likely to be indexed by Google.
  2. Large File size:
    It makes your site heavy & increases the loading time.
  3. Flash is not iOS friendly:
    Try loading flash content on your iPhone/iPad browser and it will give you an error.
  4. Security:
    Flash does not guarantee data integrity. You may loose all your vital data in Flash of a second :)

21st Century is revolutionised by UI/UX, and we are empowering it with jQuery, CSS3 and HTML5.

Simply because jQuery does what it says! Write less, Do more.

Apart from being SEO Friendly, iOS compatible and easily scalable on low bandwidth internet, it offers a lot more to enhance your websites performance and looks. You can create high-end responsive designs with great interactivity and amazing speed.

Our previous company website was believed to be Flash driven; We indeed like giving people pleasant & innovative surprises. Here is demo of our previous design, incase you happen to miss out:

“…the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short.”

Steve Jobs, April 2010

Think of SEO Before Developing Your Website

SEO (Search engine optimization) in our terms is an art of reducing gap between your site and its target audience. It’s a process of making your website easily searchable (to relevant keywords) by structuring your website navigation in user-friendly manner. Remember if the user is happy, you get more page views & less bounce rates. So you keep good content and we will handle the rest!

Why do we implement SEO in Development stage? 

Are you planning to launch a new website or redesign the current one? If yes, then we can ensure that your site is designed to be search engine-friendly from the bottom up. 

 I might as well hire some dude who charges me $5k a month and get my site in top rankings!: HMMM…

Listen what Google says: No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google. Google also keeps its organic search isolated from its revenue model. So be wary of SEO firms that make baseless promises. 

The White Hat SEO

  1. We implement all the basic and recommended SEO Practices in development stage itself!
  2. Permalinks: %Postname% This is the most popular permalink structure among wordpress users, and it is perfect as long as you can include your keywords in your post titles. Short and keyword rich urls are best for SEO.
  3. Adding Alt tags to images: This allows Google Bots to learn characteristics about the image (example: <img src=”iPhone5.jpg” alt=”iPhone 5 black colour”).
  4. We install and configure recommended SEO plugin. This provides you title, meta keywords, meta description fields along with each page/post. This helps user to easily add title and description about the post/page from backend. For example Google uses the description meta to show the short description when page is listed in search result. Check image below:

You may see the meta description in the search result for our page. We also create global meta tags for posts, products, media, forums, topics, discussions, product categories & product tags. Plugins & Tools we use:

  • WordPress-SEO plugin by Yoast
  • http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks
  • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/recipeseo/

Why We Recommend Working from Scratch!

Some of our clients might have a popular but often mistaken view that modifying templates and adding a few more lines of code would do them good. Well that is not the case always. Usually when people try to edit other’s work, it makes sense to them but not to the world. It reduces the overall efficiency and productivity. We believe writing and developing websites itself is an art. You cannot start painting your own picture on someone else’s canvas.

Work From ScratchThe Love Letter Theory!

Suppose, you’re writing a letter to a loved one (YES! That is how seriously we take our work). Would you write a letter beginning with ‘To whomsoever it may concern’? Never. You will always start with the person’s name. A mark of personal affection.

Similarly, our codes address the exact requirements your website needs. Nothing more, nothing less. We like to keep it clean! All our codes are W3C validated. This means a lot of cool stuff. Some of the prominent advantages that would interest you are:

  • Website will load faster and won’t test the visitor’s patience.
  • Better ranks in search engine results.
  • Lower bounce rate. The lower the bounce rate on your website, the better, because it means that visitors are getting engaged by your content and design.

Why work from scratch?

Working from scratch is part of our process, plus its a logical and methodical approach. This ensures utmost quality. It also means, we know the basics right. And we know exactly which function resides where in the code. This also gives you a secure website.
‘Life Time Free Bug Support’ is a promise we make to all our customers. We can’t make that promise unless we work from scratch. All companies give guarantee for their own products only. So do we. This enables our clients to trust upon us to provide them with the most viable solution.

Still not convinced? Well in simple words, our work is tailored as per your requirements. Generic themes have some features and you wish a developer adds some more to it. But what about the redundant features, which makes your website struggle when users browse it. Here comes in our custom solution.

What would you prefer, a picture painted on someone else’s canvas or on a new, fresh canvas? Let us know your thoughts.
